I can check off my list…a day in the city now.
We hopped on the train yesterday….and headed into Chicago for some fun.
The train ride is a good hour from where we live due to the good 15 or so stops we make ….
but i packed up some good ole Mad Libs so the kids could work on their adjectives…verbs…
It’s my version of homeschooling…don’t knock it…..and they are actually fun to read after the kids
use words like….
The teenagers sitting across from us thought it was hilarious…..
me….not so much.
I don’t tolerate the potty talk so much.
Once we arrived in Chicago…Bryan met us. His office happens to be up above the train station…
makes it real nice for him in the winter…not having to step foot outside at all.
Bryan met us and then we walked out and grabbed a taxi boat to Michigan ave.
My kids groaned…..why do we have to go shopping…..
but once we got inside and they were able to pick out some finds…
lola got a really fun Hello Kitty tshirt and belt…and a little dress….
and bryan always scores on some clothes.
Bryan likes clothes.
I like clothes.
I think it helps relationships if you both like clothes…its sort of like therapy.
When we both are clothes shopping together….smiling away….our issues seem to disappear.
I love couples therapy.
This is my new find…..and you know how much i love ruffles….and polka dots.
Hello dress….my name is kasey…nice to meet you.
I had to thank my therapist for telling me to go a little flirty…helps relieve some of the tension.
After our session was over….we headed to the park.
Bryan’s company was having it’s yearly family picnic…which is always a blast.
Mason and lola are really good at the hula hoop.
Mason more so then lola….mason can rock a hula hoop like no one else…..
Hula hooping and jump roping are not our forte.
This girl won hands down……she could hula hoop while jumping on one foot.
Mason never had a chance.
We had a fun day…then around 6ish…we left to find a cab back to the train station.
Have you ever been in an accident while in a cab?
We have now.
Our cab got sideswiped while we were sitting at a light….and thankfully…it was just
a little bump…but none of us were wearing seat belts.
That’s the down fall with taking cabs.
We sat there while the two drivers switched off insurance information…and
yelling profane words at each other.
It was not pretty…..and then i thought to myself…..
i guess the potty words are not so bad afterall.
p.s. as i sit here and write….lola is watching TLC’s baby story. She just informed me that
she will not be having any babies. ever. period.
